    Research output: Artistic and non-textual formExhibitionArt in coproduction


    The Alan01 installation engages interactive audience in dialogue with a fictional Alan, as if Turing's consciousness had been coded into a machine at the time of his death. The interactor can "talk" to Alan01 by a system of symbols, which we imagine to have been relevant to Alan Turing's life. The symbol combinations are signalled visibly via light to a media retrieval system. Alan01 deciphers the symbols by a collage of animations projected on the busts of Alan (Hannu Kivioja), screened videos and audio feedback including speech synthesis. The experimental production investigates associational storytelling and interaction structures, while making the patterns of human-machine communication more visible. The experimental cross media production series also includes the Turing Machine multimedia opera that was released with Ooppera Skaala in April 2008.
